Start8 fixes a few things but not all. You need the 8 Gadget Pack to restore desktop gadgets, and if you dislike "ribbons" you need another utility to restore the windows 7 interface in explorer. There are a few other things but they're pretty minor. And yes people miss aero glass, not everyone likes the minimalist Windows 95 approach of 8.

So yes if you install a few mods you can get an uglier, slightly faster Windows 7. Assuming MS doesn't disable these mods with a patch again.
You mean the gadgets that keep getting disabled due to security issues? And that the majority of people don't use. Odd I've yet to use the ribbon, but that's probably because I've been using nothing but keyboard shortcuts for the last 12 years.
